There is never an "X" to deal with here.  One never know there is
a problem until he does start->Log Off to log out of windows.

I can normally close any/all mintty windows and then with various
process explorers try to find a mintty process and never find any.
Then when I log out of Windows, Windows claims it has to close
mintty.exe.  This was fixed once in a snapshot of 1.7.10, but
has since returned with 1.7.15.  In this incarnation it seems to
occur whenever I've run a Cygwin X app from a mintty window.
If I've signed on in Windows and never run a Cygwin X app it
generally doesn't happen, but I can't be sure it never happens.
Every time I've run a Cygwin X app though I can expect to see
it after closing (apparently normally) all mintty windows and
then log off of Windows.
